Drivers, user manuals and data sheets
For drivers, user manuals and specifications relating to current products, please visit the individual model within the product section of the iiyama website. For discontinued products, please enter the model number into the iiyama service tool on the left.
N.B. Windows NT 4.0 does not require drivers to recognise an iiyama product. Many graphic cards offer additional software for that purpose. If drivers/programs of this type are not available, standard VESA drivers can be used.
Download your drivers
Driver files for all iiyama products, both new and old are contained within the one file.
Energy efficiency labels
We recommend that you use the standard functionality of the graphics card driver. Nvidia, ATI / AMD and Intel chipsets support many standard features of the Pivot.

The UK regulation concerning the recycling of products under the WEEE directive officially took effect on January 2nd 2007. The key timescales for the implementation were/are as follows:-
March 31st 2007 – Registration of producers.
July 1st 2007 – Full producer responsibilites apply.
iiyama is committed to meeting it’s obligations under the regulations and is properly registered as a producer. iiyama’s producer number is WEE/FA0049TZ. This proves that we are formally registered with a legally approved Compliance Scheme. The Scheme we are registered with is called "B2B Compliance". B2B Compliance takes on the legal responsibilites of the reporting on, and the collection and treatment of, all WEEE that iiyama is obligated for - and ensures that the appropriate recycling targets are met on this WEEE.
Anyone requiring independent confirmation of iiyama’s status should ring the B2B Compliance helpline – +44 (0) 1691 676124
Here you will find a summary of the more commonly asked questions in the monitor world.
If you would like to receive more detailed information on a specific subject, we recommend the glossary and worth knowing sections of the iiyama website. Alternatively you can email us directly.
AMD FreeSync™ technology is comparable with NVidia G-Sync technology, the main difference is that FreeSync™ is supported through the DisplayPort 1.2a standard where G-Sync requires special hardware.The technology used is Adaptive VSync, when the frame rate drops during gameplay the monitor refresh rate will also go down to stay in sync with the graphics card. Putting an end to choppy gameplay, broken frames and delivering fluid artifact-free performance. To use the functionally it’s mandatory to have an AMD GPU graphics card which supports FreeSync™.
MAC-systems previously had a different graphics cards/connections, so they were not always compatible with all monitors. For the older Mac models, before Power Mac came on the market, you can order an adapter from iiyama. The newer Mac systems (PowerMac and newer) can always be used in combination with our monitors. However, some MAC’s use Apple own proprietry out put for connecting to Monitors. In these cases an additional adapter will be required. Please contact your iiyama dealer and provide information on the MAC system you are using so that iiyama can correctly advise which adapter you will need.
All iiyama monitors are Plug & Play. In a modern operating system Plug & Play (from Win98 SR2) is not necessary to install a monitor driver, as the most relevant information has been automatically exchanged between your system and the iiyama Plug & Play monitor. The driver contains the color profile of your monitor, it can be installed on Windows operating systems, which can increase colour performance if used.
Almost all iiyama monitors meet TCO '03 and TCO 5.0 or 6.0 standard, which means that the monitors meet the toughest requirements in the field of radiation, ergonomics, environment and health.
The brightness of a monitor is measured in cd/m². Our LCD monitors have a brightness above 250 cd/m². This is especially useful when viewing moving images and playing games.
This is the digital connection to an LCD monitor or graphics card. With a DVI connection the picture quality is always perfect. There are two different connections. The DVI-D connector is a digital only connection and DVI-I (also known as DVI-A) lead can be either digital or analog signal (with analogue control a cable with a 15 pin VGA connector is connected on the computer).
This is the digital connection to an LCD monitor or graphics card. With a HDMI connection the picture quality is always perfect. Sound is also transmitted through the HDMI cable, but please check with computer and laptop manufacturers to ensure that the HDMI ports used can carry sound. The signal from HDMI is compatible with DVI-D (without sound).
It is possible to play games or watch DVD on LCD monitors when connects to a Console or PC System. The response time is an LCD screens ability to turn a pixel on then completely off. This time is measured in mile seconds, which varies from one LCD monitor, currently the fastest is 1ms. Our LCD monitors are now all a response time between 1 and 5 ms and therefore all are suitable for playing games and watching movies.
There are three technologies used in the production of LCD Screens, these are:
- Twisted Nematic (TN) – TN Panels use an LCD Technology whereby the LCD Elements twist and untwist when a voltage is applied, which controls the level of light passing through the pixel. This is the most common LCD technology on the market, and benefits from high response times and can acheive 72% of the colours in the NTSC Colour Light Spectrum.
- In Plane Switching (IPS) – IPS Panels use an LCD Technology whereby a pixel shifts alignment when a voltage is applied. IPS offers good response times and can achieve a degree of high colour accuracy, making it suitable in some Graphics Applications, and also offers enhanced viewing angles.
- Vertical Alignment (VA) – VA Panels are similar to IPS, but when to voltage is applied to the pixel , it creates a near perfect black scren. VA tends to offer much higher contrast ratios and colour accuracy (100% + of the NTSC Colour Gamut) and is often used for Photographic and Graphics applications.
Yes, iiyama provides monitors with protective glass. See this page for more information.
An LCD monitor is made up of millions of pixels (picture elements). A pixel defect occurs when a pixel (in red, green or blue) stays lit or ceases to function. In practice, a defective pixel is barely visible to the naked eye. It in no way impedes the functionality of the monitor. Despite our efforts to perfect production of LCD monitors, no manufacturer shall guarantee that all of its LCD panels will be free from pixel defects. Iiyama will however exchange or repair a LCD monitor if there are lot more pixels than acceptable. See our pixel policy for warranty conditions.

The monitor is detected as television by the computer. By changing the overscan you can make the picture full screen. Below is a guide for recent, ATI based videocards.
Right click on an empty part of the desktop and click on
'Catalyst(TM) Control Center'.
Select in the left top menu the option 'Desktops & Displays'.
Select the black triangle of the screen (in the botton of the window) and click on 'Configure'.
Now set, on the tab 'Scaling options', the slider to 0% (Overscan).
This is a standard size (VESA 100mm or 200mm) through which you can easely mount your monitor. Almost all LCD monitors and LCD-TV's have mounting holes according to this standard.
The IP code (International Protection Marking) classifies and rates the degree of protection provided against intrusion (body parts such as hands and fingers), dust, accidental contact and water.
IPX1 means that the monitor is protected to vertically falling water drops. IPX3 means that the monitor is protected to water sprays at any angle up to 60° vertical. IPX4 means that the monitor is protected to water splashes against the enclosure from any direction. IP54 means that the monitor will operate in dusty conditions, and will resist splashing water. IP65 means the monitor is completely dust tight and will resist water jets.
